Test Scores

TOEFL iBT Test

  • The TOEFL iBT test is assigned scores on a scale of 0 to 120 points.
  • Each of the four sections (Reading, Listening, Speaking, and Writing) receives a scaled score from 0 to 30. The scaled scores from the four sections are added together to determine the total score.
  • Each speaking question is initially assigned a score of 0 to 4, and each writing question is initially given a score of 0 to 5. These scores are converted to scaled scores of 0 to 30.

Paper-based Test

  • The final PBT score ranges between 310 and 677 and is based on three sub scores: Listening (31–68), Structure (31–69), and Reading (31–67). Unlike the CBT, the score of the Writing section (referred to as the Test of Written English, TWE) does not form part of the Final Score; instead, it is reported separately on a scale of 0–6.
  • The score test takers receive on the Listening, Structure and Reading parts of the TOEFL test is not the percentage of correct answers. The score is converted to take into account the fact that some tests are more difficult than others. The converted scores correct these differences. Therefore, the converted score is a more accurate reflection of the ability than the correct answer score is.

Accepted TOEFL Scores

Various colleges and universities in the United States of America use TOEFL scores as only one factor in their admission process.  Each college or program within a college often has a minimum TOEFL score required. The minimum TOEFL iBT scores range from 61 (Bowling Green State University) to 100 (MIT, Columbia, Harvard). A sampling of required TOEFL admissions scores shows that a total TOEFL iBT score of 74.2 for undergraduate admissions and 82.6 for graduate admissions may be required.

ETS has released tables to convert between iBT, CBT and PBT scores.

There are other forms of TOEFL, i.e., TOEFL ITP Tests and TOEFL Junior Test.

Several hundreds of thousand youth attempt TOEFL in order to be eligible for seeking admission to various colleges and universities.  In India, TOEFL will be administered from December 15, 2013, and shall continue up to March 23, 2014.  The TOEFL is administered on Saturdays and Sundays.
